Take a pastoral approach to leading worship.

The songs we sing, the liturgy we recite, the silent admiration of nature; the spirit of worship isn’t just in our actions. As Christians, we have a profound joy in knowing that Jesus loves us, and how we express that joy matters. We want to prepare students to understand and practice the complexities and intimacy of worship.

“Crown College’s worship ministry program allowed me to dive deeper into what it means to worship God. The program teaches the importance and privilege we have as believers to experience corporate worship. We come together as the church to meet with, worship, and lift up the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Creating Jesus-centered worshippers and leaders is the ultimate goal of this program, and I am so thankful for my time at Crown.”
